During the 15th century, when Admiral Cheng Ho visited Southeast Asia, the name “Penang” was already on the navigation map. Soon after the British established Penang as its trading post following the landing of Captain Francis Light in 1786, there was an influx of Chinese immigrants to Penang. Penang was one of the first states in Malaya where the Chinese immigrants settled. With perseverance and diligence, the Chinese contributed to the growth of early Penang. To understand the history of the Chinese community in Penang, the Han Chiang’s Chinese Heritage Centre is a good start.
